    Default Jackson Stomp

    Hi, Im newbie in this forum. Ive just started to play Mandolin seriously. I bought my first mandolin about year ago, but I havent have time to practise it that much. Now I have start to play mandolin more often. I like mostly oldtime bluesy/jazzy stuff and my favourite mandolin player is Dave Apollon. Heres my version of Mississippi Mud Steppers tune Jackson Stomp that I found from great compilation called Before The Blues ( Yazoo ).

    Great! I'm just getting into some Blues, Rags, etc. via Rich Del Grosso's course. Bluegrass is great but I like all kinds of Roots music! Good job, man!

    Good going! I forgot about this song. Used to do it in my old band way back nearly thirty years ago - guitar, mandolin, and fiddle. Liked Joe Turner Blues too, though could hardly hear vocals. I've never seen a steel ukulele before - very cool.

    Igor, I came across your videos recently and really enjoy the way you make them. It really looks and sounds like you have fun playing. Keep 'em coming!

    I also recently recorded this same tune, but the other version which Charlie McCoy also recorded titled, That Lonesome Train Took My Baby Away.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Js4B3TwALZY

    I have been trying to get the lick Charlie does over the I chord involving the I and 7 notes played at the same time, only syncopated and with one brushy pick stroke. You play it at around 2:30 on your version. Man he had a touch. He is able to get those two notes to ring beginning at staggered times yet they totally ring out together. Along the same line, the way he scrapes the I chord, ending on the I note. It sounds like he starts on the 5 note on the g string, the 3 on the d string, and the 1 on the A string. He plays these three notes in one down pick stroke, pushing through the chord. Man, I love his sound. This syncopated down stroke a "rake" is what I am really trying to learn from this tune. Cool stuff!

    Thank You journeybear! That uke on Joe Turner Blues is National style N soprano ukulele. I had to sacrifice that to get myself money to buy this new lovely Taropatch made by Finnish luthier Juha Lottonen ( He also makes Mandolins: www.lottonen.com ). Anyway ukes by National are great instruments!!!!

    Thank You Samjessin! I really like Your vids. with this great guitar player and singer!! I have seen this Lonesome Train... and Carbolic.. and some other vids with only guitar and singing. They are absolutely fantastic! Im happy that there is some people who keep this kinda music alive.. And yes Charlie McCoy was a very hot player: great stuff to listen and learn...

    I have only heard/played Jackson Stomp as an instrumental. Never heard words for it.

    The song to the "Jackson Stomp" tune is called "The Lonesome Train That Took My Baby Away." Here's Charlie McCoy (mandolin) and Bo Carter. I don't know who is singing. I can pick up most of the lyrics, though I hear with a Canadian accent -- but then I have listened to a lot of blues. You might find lyrics on the net under the song title though. If the links don't work search You Tube for "Charlie McCoy/The Lonesome Train That Took My Baby Away".

    Added later: "Frankie" says it's Charlie McCoy singings. See Post 13 on https://www.mandolincafe.com/forum/t...94#post1709194

    I was just going through my blues song lyrics and ran across this, which appears to be downloaded from the net:





    That Lonesome Train Took My Baby Away
    (Charlie McCoy)



    Woke up this morning, found something wrong.
    My lovin' babe had caught that train and gone.
    Now, won't you starch my jumper, iron my overalls
    I'm gonna ride that train that they call the Cannonball.

    Mister Depot Agent, close your depot down
    The woman I'm lovin' she's gonna blow this town
    Now that mean old fireman, that cruel old engineer
    Gon' take my baby and leave me lonesome here.

    (instrumental break)

    It ain't no tellin' what that train won't do
    It'll take your baby'n run right over you
    Now, that engineer man ought be 'shamed of himself,
    Take women from their husbands, babies from their mother's breast.

    I walked down the track, where the stars re fuse to shine,
    Look like every minute, I was going to lose my mind,
    Now my knees was weak, my footsteps was all I heard,
    Look like every minute, I was steppn'in another world.

    (instrumental break)

    Mister Depot Agent, close your depot down
    The girl I'm loving', she's gonna blow this town
    Now that mean old fireman, cruel old engineer
    Gon' take my baby, and leave me lonesome here.
